Mont Plaisir Guest Farm Description
Mont Plaisir, with a 360° view over the surrounding mountains, is a stately working farm with cattle, grain and asparagus, that offers luxurious self-catering accommodation. The Old Main House is a beautiful colonial style sandstone manor. The accommodation, except the Field Cottage, is set in a beautiful garden with lots of old trees, lawns and there are spectacular views. In the garden is a lapa with hammock, where you can enjoy the beauty of the sunset or gaze at the stars at night. Mont Plaisir is a perfect halfway stop, in a safe and tranquil surrounding, between the Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. It is also an ideal starting point for trips into Lesotho.
